Why join BMYC?

BMYC is an active and friendly club with a strong tradition for yacht racing and cruising around the Sussex coast and further afield around the UK, Europe and across the Atlantic.  It’s not entirely about sailing though, we have a great social calendar.

In October 2015 we relocated to a new, floating club house – our first permanent home since our inception in the 1970s.  So, in addition to a year-round racing and cruising calendar, members will now enjoy a fantastic new facility, including the Clubroom area, a comfortable and contemporary bar, galley, lounge and sun-deck setting in the heart of Brighton Marina. As a full member you have a discount on food and drink prices.

Any person with an interest in water sports can be qualified to be elected as a member of the club. Membership is subject to the approval of the board of BMYC.

If you have any questions about membership, please contact our membership director, Janice Dykes, via email on membership@bmyc.uk or telephone 01273 818711.

If you are interested to know more about the structure of the club, copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Association and By-Laws are available to view/download.
